The  Friday Night Kickoff Cocktail Party is an hour-long festive gala spent with the celebrities. It’s a perfect way to know the stars and meet other fans. The Saturday Evening Celebrity Banquet will be your chance to dine with the stars, which gives you the opportunity to get up close and personal in a more relaxed setting. You can rock with the stars during the Exclusive Platinum Party and aim to win and awe the crowd in the Guitar Hero competition.
